New RAM for the RIG

Post by Ambush on Wed Mar 16, 2011 6:07 pm

I ordered it. Should be arriving today. Man Newegg stuff gets here quick. I love it.

G.SKILL PI 6GB (3 x 2GB) 1600mhz

G.SKILL FAN FOR RAM

It's cheap. The RAM I have is the RAM that was available when the X58 motherboard launched. The latency is real high. This is a change for me because I have always used Corsair.

Corsair Dominator - 9-8-9-24 or 8-8-8-24 (forgot if this is the correct one or not)
G. SKILL - 6-8-6-20

Newegg Member Review

Pros: I to have also caught on to the low timings like 5-6-5-20 with a bit lower freq. And I must say my Windows 7 has never had so much zip. Upgraded from a previous pair of gskills and never regretted the decision.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I used to be a hardcore Corsair person and before that Crucial. But with the track record and products that G Skill puts out I will never go back. I recommend this company to all my customers and friends. They just work period!

Wow. Nice timings. I will have to look into it.

Still didn't put it in yet...I'll do it tonight hopefully and let you know the difference. I gotta remember to do a bench test otherwise it will all be going off mental persuasion. "It's supposed to be faster therefore it is."
